    SENIORS -- WELCOME BACK and we hope you are ready to work hard and start making concrete plans for your years after high school.  Mr. Wagar and Ms. Pellerin will be meeting with each Senior individually starting in September.  Please stop by the Guidance Office to sign up for your Senior meeting with your counselor.

    If you plan to attend a University, you should have an SAT or ACT exam under your belt.  If not, please sign up to take one as soon as possible.  At this time, you should be starting your brag sheet and considering teachers for your letters of recommendations.  If you need further assistance with any of these items, please see your school counselor.
